're overdue. thanks to amman, the man with all the answers. >>> after the break, president obama gets his game face back following wednesday's debate telling voters in denver yesterday about the real mitt romney. >> the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year, promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to favor the wealthy, the fellow on stage last night said, he didn't know anything about that. the real mitt romney said we don't need any more teachers in our classrooms, but -- don't boo. vote. >> but has the obama campaign voted on how to portray the republican nominee? we will return to the paradox of the mittens when obama's super pac chief bill burton joins the package, next on "now." ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing the all-new completely re-imagined 2013 chevrolet malibu. sleek new styling... sophisticated dual cockpit design, and sport sculpted seats. available chevrolet mylink infotainment system. the all-new 2013 chevrolet malibu. ♪ refined comfort to get you in a malibu state of mind no matter what state you live in. ♪ we don't let frequent heartburn come
is above all of this. i think valerie jarrett sat next to mrs. obama during the debate tells the president every day, you're the greatest orator in the history of language. i think if you hear that long enough you don't think you have to prepare for the debate and have contempt for anyone who would even dare challenge you for your job. bill: larry sabato, the university of virginia, right, he said last night that it is clear he blew off all of hess practice sessions. >> right. bill: and he said there is evidence to prove that. but it doesn't just stop with folks like al gore. ed schultz was on "the today show.". savannah guthrie asked him specifically what was going on. here he what he said. so many lies coming across the stage and so many inaccuracies, it was hard for the president to comprehend it and decide which one he wanted to attack first. i really believe that because the president's personality is bookish, likes to explain things. will not put something in two or three or four like thing and say well, i'm done with it guthrie says, it sound like you're making excuses. he went on t
. >> thank you. president obama in battleground virginia today on the heels of the favorable jobs report. he started speaking at george mason university and wasted no time telling voters they need to vote for him in order to prevent another unemployment crisis. >> because of your strength and resilience, the strength and resilience of the american people, we have made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. i cannot allow that to happen. i will not allow tha. that's why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states. >> now the president heads to the battleground state of ohio for a campaign stop in cleveland. >> a personal dispute behind the deaths of photel chef and an american man from new york. he stole a gun from a hotel security guards in israel and fired several shots in the kitchen, killing the schef. killed police. he has not been identified. >> as ceremony to remember the victims of the d.c. sniper shootings was held last night. >> we thank you vote, lord, for the opportunity to gather together for a solemn remembrance
all this stuff. but he did not tell us how. it was extremely frustrated. >> obama did not mention anything about china. he skirted the questions. he was not direct. it was trying to protect mitt. mitt and confident. when he was attacked on, you do not have details for your plan, this that and the other, i believe he said it every other time -- number one, i did this. number two, we do that. so i think we are going to have a very good debate sessions coming up in the near future. i hope mitt pulls through. >> i thought both candidates did a good job. i was a little more impressed with the president and because of that, i am getting off the fence and i'm going with the president. i think the moderator could have exercised more control. he kind of let romney cut in and takeover more than he should have. i found obama to be more believable. or.as ok with the moderat he allowed us to see the true personalities of the candidates. >> the debate was not anything very special. i felt that romney was being a bit ridiculous, constantly interrupting obama. overall, i am not very much of a gre
: yes. yes. kay not tell you president obama has a great -- he is just a great man. and as far as sununu, if he wasn't saying what he says here in this country, he would be in jail someplace or beheaded. thank god for the united states. >> jamal: absolutely. we're lucky we don't have to have that kind of result especially those of us who talk for a living on the radio. thank you for being here. steve in perriesville indiana. >> caller: yeah, hey. sununu is calling president obama lazy the whole house and senate republican party has been lazy ever since they have been in office. they have done nothing and they are calling this man lazy and un-american. they are the ones that are un-american. >> jamal: yeah, to talk about people are un-american, that takes us back to an ugly time in history. you had -- paul robeson who is a great artist who had political beliefs that were unpopular at the time who was treated so badly. don't you think it's time for us to get past the un-american talk? >> caller: oh, yeah. barack obama is one of the best presidents we have ever h
presume we're going to see more of the campaigning obama than we saw in that debate, and at the same time he has got to tell a story here that sticks to numbers that are real. i think that if one party and one candidate can really stick to the real tale of where we are economically and how we move forward in this economy that is inhibited by what's happened in the great recession, that honesty might carry the campaign, but i don't think that pie in the sky is going to do it like we saw especially out of romney the other night. >> i agree with that, and i think it would actually play to the president's core message about investment. the reason that we are where we are economically is a competitiveness issue. jobs have gone abroad. this is not a three-year process a ten-year process, it's a 30-year process. the labor share of the pie has been shrinking since the 1970s. so i think that that's good for the president because it plays to his message. we've got to invest in education in infrastructure. countries like china spent four times as much on infrastructure as a percentage of their econo
aspiration. politically, i think these numbers tell president obama. people are hardened into their corners. we are essentially looking at eight to nine swing states. i sometimes think not to be too cute about this. i would like to come back as a woman swing voter in iowa. --ohio. we're seeing that targeting of the 2%, 3%. i think these numbers will play a role. how big? it's hard to know. the hardening of this election is in place. host: the focus of the cover on your magazine and that is the next president possibility to make his selection for the supreme court. i'm wondering what your view is of the current makeup of the court and which direction it will go as the new term opens this week in light of the vote on health care. guest: your viewers can see that cover. it is pretty clearly stated. often the court is viewed through the prism through hot- button social issues like abortion, guns, criminal defense issues. this is very much about the election where we have four supreme court justices over the age of 70. the next president will have the opportunity to shape this court for a genera
number is so important to jobs, to various campaigns, isn't it smart to have obama donors in as economists in the department of labor statistics? >> and let me tell you, there's no law against giving money. these are not major-- you're making it out like somehow george soros is running the department. ridiculous, eric. >> and you attacked me on something about the-- >> the confidence has been going up for months, this is not something that's based on-- >> i think two statistics that do matter in here to people. whether or not they would pay attention to them. one is the participation rate. >> yes. >> you have that few people, the lowest it's been since 1962. >> let's look at why that is. because more people close to retirement age are deciding that they-- >> that's been debunked several times. >> they're unemployed and-- >> no, no, no, they're taking early retirement and deciding you know what? >> and the line that bob beckel tried to use and it actually does not pan out and the second one is that take home pay is not keeping up with inflation. and inflation is higher so t
more reporting from iowa later on today on cnn. thanks so much. >>> as we have been telling you, president obama expected to take the podium soon in virginia. when he begins speaking, we'll take you back there live. all o. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my way into the venue, the candidate will be rehearsing off of his phone. [ candidate ] and thanks to every young face i see out there. [ woman ] his phone is one of his biggest supporters.

[ female announcer ] live the regular life. phillips'. >>>
think they get that politicians say anything and obama doesn't do that. he pretty much tells it like it is. did he do a good job in the debate? no. i think he could have been more aggressive. >> i want to ask you about vice president biden yesterday, on the stump some people are calling it a gaffe, that they want to raise taxes by $1 trillion. guess what yes, we do. is that the right kind of message? >> wait a minute. no. excuse me. the rest of that you had in full context, yes, we're going to raise taxes on the wealthy. they've been saying that for a year. and specifically said we're not going to raise taxes on the middle class. that's what he said. this is not a gaffe. this is media hang wringing again. people accused me when i was running of gaffes all the time. a gaffe is what people in washington call the truth the that you said when you shouldn't have. they're going to avoid raising tax on middle class people. it's a reasonable thing. that's what they've been saying for a year. >> do you think this debate has consequences for this campaign? >> i think it's
in virginia a short while ago. mr. obama touts the new unemployment report telling the crowd it shows that his policies are moving the country forward. the september jobless rate dropping to 7.8%, it's down from 8.1%. doug mckelway live at the white house with more. doug? >> reporter: hey, jon, these new unemployment numbers obviously coming as tremendously welcome news to an obama campaign that is still reeling from what most now agree was a lackluster debate performance last month. in fairfax, virginia, at george mason university, the president departed from his standard stump speech to tout these new numbers. here he is just moments ago. >> but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. [cheers and applause] because of your strength and resilience, the strength and resilience of the american people, we've made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. >> reporter: but behind these apparently encouraging unemployment n
one way, 45, 47% go the other way. we fight over the other 10%. it's certainly the case that obama has built out the victim economy, the dependency economy, the welfare economy. there are many, many people that obama has effectively created who conceptualize themselves in that way and i think mitt romney was telling the truth. he should have doubled down and mobilized the base and said yeah, that is true. so what. >> maybe she's showing -- he's showing up again as trying to be in the middle and bees the etch a sketch guy we heard critics say he is. this is your guy, jack. >> i'm a conservative. he was not my choice, i support him, he's the nominee. i support him strongly. i would have preferred someone fatherrer from the right. romney changeed his position on various things and that is why he's having trouble mobilizing the debate. i think ryan is helping him with that. if romney can runhe table on the debates, i think ryan will be a big winner this week. if romney can win the last two, i think the race becomes in play and romney can win it. >> all right, all eyes will be on the debate
the autoworker in the eye and tell them he wanted to let detroit go bankrupt. >> jennifer: you preach it, ben! that's what i'm talking about. put up the dukes! all right. ben labolt, national press secretary for president obama's re-election campaign. thank you so much for joining us inside "the war room." coming up, we're going to get on the road to 270 electoral votes with the master of predictions "the new york times" nate silver. nate will walk us through his predictions on the race. how did the debate affect it? you won't want to miss it. plus we have more debate lies from mitt romney to strike down. mitt liked our next one so much that he repeated it five times. you are in an irritated war room on a thursday night and that isisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisisis it's go time. it's go time. it's go time. go time. you know what time it is. go time. it's go time. it's go time. what time is it rob? here comes the young turks go time! it's go time. oh is it? then it's go. go. go. go. go. go. go. go time. anybody? anybody? wh
think he can. i tell you, after that debate and after barack obama's performance, which was staggeringly bad. >> all right. >> no, i mean it. >> okay. >> i'm hearing this from democrats. and this broke through, you know, we always hear about how americans aren't paying attention. they're looking at reality. so this broke through. everybody was talking. but not just how well romney did but how badly the president performed. >> well, just as i think it was premature to declare the race over before, i think it's too soon to say that performance is widely watched as it was and as strong as it was is actually going to move numbers. we've yet to see any numbers move. i think they probably will some and i think that on the other hand did governor romney win the day yesterday in the news cycle given how strong he was thursday night? he didn't decisively win it. he did one event late in the day. he did one event late in the day. look at the evening newscast, the morning papers. >> he doesn't have to win every day. >> i think he has to win most days. he lost about two months of days. i think he's
candidate. >> that's right. i think that we saw in 2008 barack obama was a very good candidate, beating people like hillary clinton and john mccain. when he became president, he forgofo forgot the skills. consider after passing the campaign law and telling the american people what it was, persuading it about the merits, he let the republicans do that. now it's obama care and it's unpopular because he let that gap be filled by the opposition. >> john, speaking of that 2008 campaign, one of the things that impressed me and i think impressed a lot of people was not just the mail and the messages and the ads out of the obama campaign, but the actual perception they were running an effective campaign and he was an effective leader because of that campaign. does that typically persuade voters, the perception of a good campaign? >> i think it does. it suggests he can manage a big undertaking because a presidential campaign is large and messy, trust me. he managed it with great success in 2008. beating hillary clinton, coming out of nowhere, defeating john mccain. there were very few mistakes c
went down. this is about as good as the numbers have been since barack obama has been president. so, will it help? i couldn't say for sure. but i'll tell you one thing, it is sure not going to hurt. >> that's exactly right. you'll also have former baseball manager on face the nation this sunday and i know that everybody here in washington can agree on one thing. that is, the nationals are in the playoffs. we are excited about it. you're a big nats fan. let me make you jealous because i was at the stadium in the locker room when they clinched last week. how about that? >> wow. that is great. by the way, i should add that we're going to have tony la russa. we're going to have dodger legend e tommy lasorta. we'll have jane who wrote that great biography of mickey manet l and one of my favorite observers and writers of baseball, peter gammons who is going to be with us. we are not going to be talking about the debates or politics. we'll talk about politics in the first half of the show when david action axlerod will have writers. but we just decided with the nats going to the playoff

a poll tells us happened last night. it showed us that basically nothing happened that today in the poll taken today that president obama has gone up one point. that is movement within the margin of error and means nothing. the den vver post head line tod uses a boxing analogy round one. the reporter who wrote the front-page story switches to another sport bull fighting, in the first paragraph of his article it is perfect. republican nominee charged at president obama, at the university of denver on wednesday, in a clash that was notable for romney's aggressiveness in a direct night. here is the great part like a bull to a matador. romney time and again turned toward obama to the tax po portraying him hopeless in trying to turn the economy around. like a bull to a matador turned to obama to deliver attacks. like a bull to a matador. and what does a matador do to a bull in the end? hey. hey eddie. i brought your stuff. you don't have to do this. yes i do. i want you to keep this. it'd be weird. take care. you too.

of the obama campaign, did you president underestimate his opponent and did it take the wind out of your sails for the work you're doing for the president to get re-elected. >> i'll tell you what, it's really hard to argue against somebody who shows up with totally new proposals that says, oh, he loves teachers and last week he said obama wants to hire more teachers and i'm not for that. that suddenly he's for -- he's not for cutting taxes on the top earners in this country, on the wealthy, and, of course, his whole proposal is denying that he has a proposal that would cut taxes by $5 trillion. there's a name to that proposal. he printed it out. the analysis that was done was based on a romney proposal that now he says he doesn't know what obama is talking about. it's utterly amazing, hard to debate somebody who has totally different plans than he really has said in the past. >> does this mean the president has fulfilled his promise to get unemployment below 8% and this isn't a one-term proposition? >> you know, you can't deny the numbers. 7.8% is, in fact, lower than 8%, and that's kind of th
and abortion. correspondent steve brown tells us where that race stands right now. >> this race is not over. i -- i'm not assuming anything. >> senator clare mccaskill is nothing if not careful. she's maintained a safe distance from fellow democrat president obama who's not popular in her home state. and the missouri senator hovers just a bit more than two points above republican congressman todd akin in the real clear politics average of show-me state senate polling. on undecideds are eyebrow raising 10%. >> this is probably two-thirds pro republican undecided so there's enough there, i think, for akin to make up the difference, if he gets the help he needs. >> help has been in short supply in the last three weeks since his gaffe about quote, legitimate rape. and shunned by national republican leaders including mitt romney. >> basically we lift the barn and they put the barn on top of us. in suburban st. charles county. it's not akin folks are mad at. >> we've probably had nor people looking for akin signs after the way he was treated by the party establishment folks in washington d.c. >> i a
the obama campaign has a fabulous ground game. we can't tell yet how good -- it may -- romney effort may be fabulous or not be or may be in between, we don't know that. but to echo something that fred said, the obama campaign has to have a better ground game because of the challenge they have motivating and getting young and latino voters out. don't think the ground game, thereby nice for the african-american community because i think the african-american community is motivated where they don't necessarily need organizational effort but young people and latinos it's a challenge. so it's essential for the obama campaign to have a very aggressive ground game because two groups were so important with victory last time and are not going to be there on their own devices without a lot of motivational effort. i think they have to. >> that's an important point. a couple observations. i don't know how good the romney ground game will be. i know it will be miles ahead for 2008 for mccain. from that standpoint, you know, it's going to be just significantly better. secondly, fred made a good point w
for a $5 trillion tax cut. >> when president obama says that governor romney is going to provide a $5 trillion tax cut, he's only telling half the story. governor romney proposes a 20% across-the-board income tax cut, and to abolish the estate taxes. >> reporter: governor romney still hasn't described in detail how he's going to accomplish his revenue-neutral plans without raising taxes on the middle class, without increasing the deficit. now to president obama's claim that he'd only raise taxes on upper income people to where they were under president clinton. >> i have said that for incomes over $250,000 a year, that we should go back to the rates that we had when bill clinton was president, when we created 23 million new jobs. >> what president obama is leaving out there is that there are new taxes in the health care law, specifically that would target high-income earners. in fact, they would be paying a higher rate than they did under president clinton. >> reporter: finally, governor romney on the deficit under the obama administration -- >> the president said he'd cut the deficit
convenient for the obama administration. what do you say? >> stuart, stuart, i'm going to tell you something. one of-- let's get serious here. our status stigses in washington d.c., i'm not saying they can't play a little bit at the margins, but we've had a declining unemployment rate and a growing economy for almost three years now and if people don't believe the-- i think one of the reasons people have a problem believing the numbers, they bet so heavily on really bad economy, i think. stuart: brian, wait, wait. i know what you've been saying, i know what you've been saying. >> the unemployment rate to be below #-- >> the reason why the unemployment rate has come down is because god knows how many millions of people have dropped out of the work force and now, suddenly, oh, how conveniently, in the month of september, 873,000 of them come right back in and say, i got a job. what's with that? >> well, okay, there's two surveys, i mean, if you really want to get in the weeds. stuart: i do. >> the household survey where we knock on people's doors and ask them, are you working or are you not. i

romney's been saying for the last year. >> president obama cannot rewind and unleash that last night at the podium? but the way he and his opponent's campaign have adjusted their tactics in moving on from last night's debate tells you more about where the campaign is going from here than any dial test you saw during last night's debate. that's next with jonathan alter.

trillion. >> what is happening in new orleans? where is your dollar? [applause] it tells me that people in new orleans, they don't care about as much. megyn: that was then presidential candidate barack obama in 2007, suggesting that racism is a relief effort involved for the folks in hurricane katrina. this particular part of his offscreen comments, they got little to no coverage before they were posted on a daily caller.com. the president's deputy campaign manager is calling on the romney campaign to denounce the video, saying that the romney camp needs to stand up and say it was wrong for the daily caller to post the president's comments earlier in the week. take a listen. >> i think that allies to mitt romney are responsible and they should stand up and do the right thing and say that it was irresponsible to do something like that, particularly on the eve of the debate. it was so transparent what they were trying to do. mitt romney has been taking heat for weeks for his comments behind closed doors with his wealthy donors. he didn't care about this country. their answer is to put out
because we heard what you've been saying for the last 18 months. >> right. obama is now in a position to nail jello to the wall. you said that romney was lying on wednesday night. now, that's possible or it's possible he's now telling the truth and the others were lies. you can't have a tax cut of that size and not add to the deficit because there are not enough loopholes to close to get you to that point. >> dana, isn't that the problem? he comes out of this debate having three at trically won a score in terms of the night but now he's got the problem of having to defend an economic plan that is really problematic for him, particularly given his record and particularly given the republican base. going forward, doesn't he have the burden to defend what he did the other night? >> he does. i assume what is going on here is romney said, look, with the hard right thing, we are down in the key states. we're down overall. this isn't working. well, let's bring back that etch-a-sketch campaign. will americans believe suddenly this man that's been saying one thing for the last year or two is n
that is a misapprehension on the public's part. >> my sources tell me that there are, i guess, capabilities in place for special operations teams, as well as drum strikes if the call is made. the other issue here is, in some ways, president obama is darned if he doesn't die but he doesn't. it would be seen as a political move in an election year a month away from the election if he was to take a strike based on intelligence. however, not acting could also have political consequences. it is a tough decision for the white house at this point summaries. >> that is a very talented both view, i think, part of analysts that would say that is a pro-american government. there is nothing refusing to allow fbi agents go there, but those aren't the acts of a friendly government, either that, or it was a delay on the part of a very timid government, namely our own to well, i'm still trying to find out the dynamics there. the one thing i can say is that the reaction in the aftermath of the assault was very different than what we saw in egypt. there were some arrests, although it does look like the people who wer
